Cherry Class (Year 1/2)

Welcome to Cherry Class

Hello Children,

It is now the Summer Term  and we can enjoy being outside more. We have lots to do and learn, but also time for fun too.

Mrs Bath is your TA and when I am out of class on Thursday afternoon Mrs Bath and Miss Wilson will be teaching you. Our PE day is on Thursday, so it is an opportunity to get out in the fresh air and being healthy!

 

 

 

 

 

Reading

We are currently changing books on Monday and Friday, so please remember to bring in your book bags. Reading at home really supports learning in school, so try to read when you get the books if you can.

If you want more opportunities to read you can access books on https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/ It is free to access Ebooks appropriate to your child’s level or age. You just need to create a user name and password.

 

 

Literacy

We will continue on our focus of building up the children’s phonics and spelling to plug any gaps from their time away from school. We will be using a film with a story from another culture to build a love of stories and to remind us about our nouns, verbs and adjectives We will learn about non-fiction texts which will include instruction writing and we will learn about different sentence types and  joining sentences.

Maths

In Maths we are starting with some work on position and direction, then we will learn about time before moving on to fractions. We are learning our 2, 5 and 10 times table. If you know these already in order, you could practise them out of order to check you really know them. If you can do this have a go at your 3 and 4 times table.

Science

We will be learning about food and where it comes from and which foods are healthy and unhealthy. They will look at trees in their local environment and learn about the different parts of plants.

Computing

The children will be learning how to code by building up their skills with fun activities.

RE

We will be learning about Ascension and Pentecost.

Geography

The children will learn about where food comes from, which foods grow where and food miles.

PE

The children are learning fundamental movement skills, which include running and jumping and throwing and catching. 

D&T

The children will be learning about healthy foods. They will design and make a pizza for a friend.

PSHE

The children will do activities as part of Well-being Wednesday to address the issues we have in these current times and to have some time for reflection and fun.
